So, I made my DT card for both challenges this week and thought I would make a Halloween birthday card and play off the idea of getting older...soooo old, in fact, you are a ghost, he, he, he! I used this really cute and fun Halloween image from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called Hattie from the Moonlight Whispers collection. I coloured her with my Copics and Twinkling H20s and cut the image out with my Nesties. I left the image in the die and sponged with Metallic Rub-ons to give it a spooky feel. I used AC cardstock and BG Kioshi 6x6 papers and I embellished with AC ribbon, Prima flowers and WOC roses. Unfortunately, I went and covered most of the layout up with flowers and you can't see the circle of paper that is part of Heather's beautiful sketch...Opps! I'm not loving this card, friends...something just not right with it and I didn't do the best job on colouring this super cute image...sorry, I just didn't do Hattie justice with this one!
The sentiment on the front of the card is a Melissa Frances rub-on and for the inside sentiment I used a C.C. Designs sentiment for "spooky" and "Birthday Wishes" is from Kimmie's Everyday Sentiment set!

Well, we have a new challenge for you to play along with over a the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog! We have a gorgeous sketch this week by the uber krafty, Michele Boyer...I just love this sketch to bits...I always love Michele's gorgeous cards and layouts so it was so nice to get to make a "Michele"styled card! All the krafty girls have stunning creations to inspire you so please stop by and have a peek at their cards and then join us! Just remember to be eligible for a prize you need to use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp! This week the prize will be, Christmas Clara, as that is the adorable new Holiday stamped image featured on Michele's card and Michele has paper pieced Clara's dress and it looks fabulous...I have to try that,smile!
So, for my card I used, Willard, one of the new Moonlight Whispers images from the Holiday Release. I just adore him too...what a cutie! I actually coloured this image when I was at ScrapFeast last weekend at the Kraftin' Kimmie booth for our copic colouring demo. I had this 6x6 paper pad by Crate Paper called Snow Day, in mind when I was colouring it. Good thing it all matched...phew! Since it's a boy card I kept it simple and didn't add any flowers. the ribbon is American Crafts and a few half pearls. The sentiment is from Kimmie's Fun Phrases Set and I added lots of Stickles so it really sparkles.
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Well, today we have a new challenge over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog. We would like to see Distressing on your creations and you have the next 2 weeks to join us! Please remember that to be eligible for any prize you must use a WOJ image. The WOJC DT have made such gorgeous creations so pop by and see what inspiring creations they have made for this challenge!
So for my card I decided to use one of my Henry the Mouse images that are just so cute but for some reason I have neglected to use them! I coloured Henry with my copics and cut him out. I added some "Dimensional Snow paint" to the fur trim of his hat and then sprinkled it with Glamor Dust while it was still wet! I Also used some new Echo Park pp that I just LOVE called Merry Christmas. to Distress the card I roughed up the edges of the paper with my Tim Holtz distress tool and applied some Distress Crackle paint in Picket Fence. I also went around the paper and sponged with gold Metallic Rub-ons. To embellish I used ribbon from my stash and prima flowers with half-pearls. The green ones where white and I coloured them with a green Copic marker. The sentiment on the front of the card is an element from the Echo Park pp pack!
Here is the inside...very simple and I didn't distress the inside papers as it makes the card very difficult to close properly....the sentiment is a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps sentiment!
Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I hope you can join us at the WOJ challenges!

Today I am featuring Merry....she is sooooo sweet and I loved colouring her...I told my daughter, Hannah that I think this is the best turkey I have ever "made",lol! She totally agreed, considering I have never cooked a turkey in my life...well, I have coloured one now though and it looks pretty yummy, if I do say so myself! I love this sentiment too that comes in the So Thankful Sentiment set.
I used this yummy 6x6 paper pad called Snow Day by Crate Paper...love the colours in it...perfect for a Thanksgiving, Christmas or winter card. I embellished with AC ribbon, lace trim, Prima flowers and added some QuicKutz Oak Leaves cut from the pp.

So, for my card I used Romantic Tilda....I love her to bits...she is so cute! I coloured her with my Copics and I used some 6x6 Webster Pages pp, Martha Stewart crinkled ribbon and a BG button, some Prima flowers and a Mellisa Frances rub-on and Catslife Press label stamp.
Thanks for stopping by and having a peek at my card! I'm keeping it short and sweet as I have had a long day and I'm not use to my Dad's computer so doing up this post is a bit of a challenge!

Well, enough rambling, time to get krafty! Today we have a new challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog and I'm the hostess this week! We would like to see you make a card with Non-Traditional Christmas Colours! The krafty Girls are also starting the previews from the new Sweet Holiday October release that will be available in the Kraftin' Kimmie on-line shop on Tuesday October 19th. There are 6 super cute images from Annie Rodrigue and Steven Leary is back again with super cute stamps with Miles the Mouse and pal.
So, for my card I used Christmas Clara....just love her to bits and in keeping with the non-traditional colours I used this scrumptious BoBunny patterned paper called Winter Joy that I just adore...be prepared to see lots of it over the next little while, smile! I used one of the sparkly Winter Joy brads and I embellished with Prima and WOC roses and American Crafts ribbon! I also sprinkled a few lilac half pearls here and there and added lots of stickles to Clara so she is really sparkly IRL! The sentiment on the front of the card is actually on the patterned paper!
Here is the inside...the sentiment here comes with one of the other stamps, "Nick", from the new Sweet Holiday October Release and I will be sharing a card with him later this week!
Have a Stampin' Great Day!

MDU Challenges DT as they have stunning creations to inspire you!
For my card I once again used my Echo Park Life is Good patterned paper...it was perfect for this colour combo. I decided to ink up a neglected stamp, Tilda with Sunflower...shame I neglected her really, as, she is sooooo darn cute, but she has got some love now,smile! I coloured her with my Copics and cut her out with my oval Nesties using the "Out of the Box Technique" and inked the background colour with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I used this fabulous Magnolia sentiment too from the Animal and Pet Collection. I stamped it with green Memento ink on one of the elements that co-ordinates with the Echo Park pp. I cut two scalloped borders from Kraft cardstock with my MFT large scallop border di-nmaics die and added some Martha Stewart seam binding that I crinkled. I punched some MS butterflies from QuicKutz cork material and added some Prima flowers and a little bling too!
Here is the inside it is rather simple...this sentiment is by Stamping Bella.
Pin Up Girls, Annette. I love colouring her with my Copics and I wanted to make her stockings red. I teamed her up with some new patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket called Mitten Weather...it is so pretty and I love that it is in a 6x6 paper pad too! I used some scrumptious MS seam binding, Prima and WOC flowers and the sentiments are from Kimmie's Holiday Sentiments set. I'm thinking Annette has been naughty...what do you think?
Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my KKS Challenges card! Now hop on over to Tracy's gorgeous blog and see what stunning creation she has to share with you!

For my card I inked up this gorgeous stamp Snow White from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps...I coloured her with my Copics and I think she is soooooo gorgeous...just love her to bits! I made an easel card from Bazzill Bling cardstock and used Sugar Rush and a bit of Lemonade BG 6x6 papers for this card. for the Bling I used this super glittery ribbon and gems and I used some Prima flowers and shimmerized them and I added so sparkle to Snow White too with my Sakurha stardust pen. Sentiments are Melissa Frances rub-ons!
